    Vercors and Provence trip

    Turned up early at Eurotunnel this morning 06.45 and got on a 07:18 train saving 3 hours,
    If your planning a crossing it's worth booking a early one because the French checks take 4/5mins per vehicle on average and at busy times can cause lengthy delays
    Anyway uneventual 300 mile blast down to Chaumont for first overnight stop at Ibis styles hotel which has about the best secure parking I've seen!
    250miles tomorrow to Rencurel Vercors for 6 nights at hotel Marrimor, then move on to Castellane hotel du Commerce for another 6 nights

    Hotel Le Marronier is a great place to stay.

    The food looks nice if conservative UKGSer fodder.

    Would be better washed down with a bottle of Pomerol...
    This space deliberately left blank as the author writes too much pretentious bollocks as it is.

    I have a lot of good memories of that place - first thing we did was to have a beer on the terrace before unpacking

    Is Jean-Francois and Caroline still running the hotel or have they handed over to someone else?

    They have retired to Portugal and their Daughter and Partner are running the place now, she seems nice, free beer offered:-)

    Ahh, I thought they might have moved on - I'm sure their daughter will do a fab job just like her parents did - my first trip to Le Marronnier was the year Jean-Francois took the place over from a Dutch couple.

    Certainly fantastic value for money, barbeque tonight, you can just keep going back for more, it's costing me 430 euros for 6 nights dinner B&B (approx £61 per night)
    There's about 30 bikes here now, I'm the only Englishman but most speak English

    I was in Castellane yesterday. We decided to go to a cracking hotel in les Salles du verdon. Very nice. In Nice now, it’s very nice ,,,,, in Nice.
